Passionately, we get straight to the Heart Of The Matter depicting conversations using recycled textiles, newspapers, frames and showcase farm to frame “green” arts studies. Our art works are drawn “from the heart”.

Artwork features – The Things I love, Care For Mother Earth, Creating with Flourish to be the best “us”, Colour Explosion, Forgotten Women, Rivers, Beaches and the Seaside.

Members have worked towards this exhibition in their favourite medium/s. Including alpaca fibre art, polymer clay and papier mache sculptures, glass jewellry, mixed media 2 dimensional “paintings” made from all manner of upcycled, recycled, natural items and rubbish picked from the beach. They have followed different creative paths and unique styles, based on their main theme of environmentally friendly art.

Others have concentrated on a particular environmental cause that means something to them and simply painted about the issue using traditional paints or natural fibres and textural matter from their own property.
